New day spa opens in Oroville

OROVILLE – Leah Colbert has opened the Day Spa on Main at 1406 Main Street in Oroville in the former home of the Clothes Tree store. The day spa offers massage and nail services and opened Sept. 1.

Colbert, a lifetime resident of the Okanogan Valley, will offer several types of massage, including Swedish, geriatric, lymphatic and relaxation massage with a lighter touch. For the past nine years Colbert’s services, Massage by Leah, were offered at the PT Works in Tonasket.

Sandra Gardner, will offer manicures and pedicures, gel nails, nail art and paraffin dips. She has owned her own business Nails by Sandra and has been licensed since 1985. She is from the Olympia area and has been living in Tonasket for the last 12 years, but moved to Oroville this month.

The spa is open Monday through Saturday and the women plan an Oct. 1 Grand Opening with cake, refreshments and specials. In addition to the massage and nail services, Day Spa on Main will feature body products and local artwork, according to Colbert.

“We’ll be adding some more services later like body wraps and hot stone massages,” said Colbert, who adds that she opened the spa because “she just wanted to start a place of my own.”

Colbert felt the location was good and hopes that her business will have a positive impact on the community and offer a relaxing atmosphere.

“Stop, breath and relax,” she said.

Colbert is married to Dan Colbert and she says they have three dogs, a cat and a huge garden.

Gardner, says they will offer high quality products, with one-on-one relations. She adds that Oroville needs their services and in the future she hopes to be “too” busy.
